Grindley, S. (2007). Bravo, Max! New York, New York: Margaret K. McElderry Books.

Max is a ten-year-old kid who writes letters very frequently to his favorite author, D.J. He writes to her about his family and school life, and she writes back to him giving advice, consolation, and news about her author world. The main adults in Max’s life are his mother (who is widowed), his Uncle Derek and Aunt Pauline, and his school friends Ben and Emily. His Uncle Derek tries to get Max’s mother out of the ho
This was an enjoyable tween read, with a gentle touch. It deals with a trying time for a 10 year old boy whose father has recently died and whose mother is starting to see another man. It's written in letter format, which moves the story along at a nice trot and leaves enough unsaid to keep you filling in the gaps.

It's also a great teaching resource, and totally inspires to write a classroom play! If I were 10 years old and my grade 4 or 5 teacher read this out aloud to my class, I'd be burstin

This was a great sequel to 'Bravo, Max.' The entire book is written in correspondence from Max to his favorite author, just like the previous book. In each book, Max is faced with a personal/family problem and the author helps him figure things out. In this second book, the problem was Max's mother started dating someone. I think kids can relate to Max, his problems, and his humorous way of looking at things. I highly recommend this for beginner readers.

الكتاب حلو اوي : ) ماكس الطفل اللي ممكن احلم يكون ابني .. عجبني فكرة الرسائل بين طفل وكاتبة مشهورة .. وعجبني ان كل مشاكل ماكس كانت بتظهر أن في شخصيات المسرحية .. عجبني ردود الكاتبة .. كتاب يخليك تتمني تبقي ماكس وبتبعت للكاتبة وبتعمل مسرحيات عظيمة او تبقي الكاتبة وتشجع كفل صغير انه ميخفش وانه يكتب
This sequel to Dear Max is just as funny and delightful. In this book, Max continues writing to his favorite author, D.J. Lucas, and gets advice about writing a play and how to deal with friendships and family changes, like his mom dating. Dear Max and Bravo Max are great reads!

In the beginning I read this book for my little brothers, but because they aren't a good listeners I decided to complete it by my self. I really liked and enjoyed this book, and I wish they could read it by themselves one day because they'll find it funny. :)
Max writes again. This time he is trying to deal with lots of growing boy issues and manages to get through with a little help from his friends.
